My 24 year old DD brought home something she "found on the floor" . . . the big plastic map of the decks on the four ships used at the on-board booking desk! I don't approve . . . . but love looking at it!

Once last year, I asked for a Mickey Bar for dessert, and the server gave me a hard time ("Those are just for the kids.") On my EBTA this year, when I really didn't care for the desserts that night, I sheepishly asked my server for one, and he not only brought it . . . but kept bringing one EVERY NIGHT, even when I ordered a dessert! I felt so guilty letting them go to waste, I would eat them, but I finally had to tell him to stop (I mean it was a 14 night cruise . . . that's alot of Mickey Bars!)

If that's something we have to confess, then I'm guilty, too! Only I ditched the cone and just filled up one of the coffee cups from the beverage station and took a spoon from Goofy's Galley to eat it with. Why make all those trips to the soft-serve machine??

Premeditated confession. I am so doing this on my cruise this month lol. Forget the coffee cup I'm going for a bucket from she sells sea shells...

(Oh well, anything is better than nothing.) However I find that I cannot clean the house without blasting Pandora Disney music!!! That is a must. If its going to be a long day catching up And up and down the stairs with laundry etc, then I will strap on my phone and ear buds so it moves with me.

My honey is funny. When he wants to perk me up, he says "brush and brush and brush my hair".

It is mental motivation I think. Extra kudos when a park song comes on!!!!!! Sometimes its Canada, sometimes its the Pirates ride, sometimes its Tiki Room! That really gets me excited like being there in addition to the soundtrack classics. Additional bursts of energy come from "hakuna matata" (just found a shirt at Walmart with simba and that on it that is my size! Not junior, yay!) And I also bop a bunch to Bear Necessities!

I was quite happy it was playing on the cruise in the background all the time.

Of course, my ringtone is Part of Your World. but that is just obvious!

Oh one more thing. On our 12 hr drives down, it makes for really fun driving music to Orlando! My honey puts on the Pandora for me while I drive and he gets out the laptop and watches whatever movies he wants with headphones and every now n then he chimes in with the song. Happy happy times and a much happier drive!

Great confession muscle dude!
Have you heard of Sorcerer Radio??? Park music all the time!!!

lol.... I think it's fine for kids... kind of like May Baskets. I haven't formally participated, but I've been known to leave a little something in the pockets of the children's FEs. I don't have any interest in receiving anything.

That's not a confession.... it's a story of courage!! I love it! I made the mistake of trying to take a seat in a row someone was guarding before one of the shows. I was promptly told that the row was RESERVED! I should've stood my ground, but my husband wouldn't allow it.... preferring to allow the row hog to break the rules than assert our right to sit in any empty seat we wanted (except for the situation you mentioned about a seat that was already occupied but left for a good reason). Next time I'll let him go find another seat by himself, lol.

I have just spent all evening reading this and it had me in stitches.

Ok so here are mine:

I didn't think the famous Palo chocolate soufflé was anything special (quickly ducks and takes cover)

I deliberately seat myself first so that I can sit furthest away from whoever else we have to dine with which leaves the rest of my family having to do the awkward small talk (I know that is really bad)

Always pretend to be asleep during spa treatments to avoid the aforementioned small talk

Have been known to help myself to the odd chocolate off the housekeeping trolley when going past and took home lots of tea bags from the hot drinks station (figured I didn't actually drink much of it on the cruise so,worked about the same overall)

Can't help but think people who spend time in the gym on a cruise are daft although they get the last laugh when I see how much weight I put on at the end of the cruise!

Finally...lovely though our servers were I would sometimes excuse myself straight after dinner so I didn't have to be appreciative of the daily magic tricks (I feel guiltiest about this as they were so sweet but I did leave my husband and at least one of my daughters behind to watch them.


WOW didn't realise I had been bottling all that up - feel cleansed now

We don't like the choc soufflé at Palo either. In fact, we tell them to please NOT bring it. We've had them bring it out without us asking and it gets wasted. We tried it 3 different times. Just not for us. (We MUCH prefer the Grand Marnier soufflé!)

We don't take choc - DH likes the bar soap lol....

And I love the gym. Like love it I'm there at 6:25am waiting for it to open and I wished it opened at 6am or even earlier!
